10 September – 26 November 2017
Organized by Fondazione Berengo
Curated by Jean Blanchaert, Noah Khoshbin
Since 2009, Glasstress, an exhibition of contemporary art and glass, has been an official collateral event of the Venice biennale of art and has inspired artists and designers from around the world to work in glass in the furnaces of Murano. Glasstress is also the inspiration for music. Max Casacci, the well-known producer, composer and founder of Subsonica and Daniele Mana, a musician and producer also known as Vaghe Stelle, recorded the sounds and the melodies of glass being made and broken in the furnaces of Berengo Studio on Murano. No rhythmic pre-sets or drums were added, neither acoustic nor electronic. All the rhythmic sounds are purely glass and the album is fittingly called Glasstress.
